Scratch and Grain Baking Co. is the creation of Leah Tutin and Taya Geiger. They created the cookie kit that is packaged and numbered to give you the exact ingredients to make fantastic tasting cookies.
Scratch and Grain Baking Co. presents in Shark Tank Season Six.
The company is in 220 locations, including Whole Foods. Leah's daughter wanted to bake cookies so, she went to the store and came home with all the ingredients. She ended up with a ton of waste which led to putting a kit together with precise measurements, allowing for the perfect cookie. Now, there is no wasted product.
Sales since inception fourteen months previous are $54,000. The had a lot of production problems, and still hand-label each bag. They sell retail between $7-12. All in cost is $3.89.
Their cost will go down to $2.15 with the right equipment.
Lori suggests that the cost could go down considerably if it were all in one bag. She thinks they should place each ingredient layered in one container.
Leah responds that baking from scratch is better, and is part of the process. She says the tiers make it way better.

What do the Shark Tank Investors say about Scratch and Grain Baking Co?
- Mark Cuban's idea of baking is smelling the food, and he has no clue so, he is out.
- Barbara Corcoran thought you were talking about scratching with the name of the business. It should be “from scratch.” Barbara wishes they would ask for $50,000 instead of $150,000 because it is way too much to take a risk. Barbara comes back in and offers $150,000 as a line of credit for 20%. They do the deal.
- Kevin O'Leary believes unless they get the production down to $1.70 they will be going out of business. He tells them good luck; he is out.
- Lori Greiner says the first thing that came to her mind is there are so many other cookies that you can bake at home. She is out, even though she likes both of them.
- Robert Herjavec offers to give them $150,000 for 40% as long as they can get Barbara, but Barbara doesn't want to do the deal with Robert.
